dstat: plugin-based real-time monitoring system

The aim of this talk is to present dstat to the LinuxConf audience. At first I'll explain what it was designed for and why it displays information in the way it does - the usefulness of relating counters by selecting only particular values on a case-by-case basis.

I'll highlight the different use cases and show the potential of dstat as it is today in comparison with vmstat, top and other tools - how one can create raw data and graphs and what kind of plugins currently exist.

Before diving into the internals, I'll pinpoint some of the known limitations and performance aspects of using a scripting language.

At the end of the presentation, I would like to discuss with the audience what kind of additional functionality they believe is missing and especially what kind of counters/plugins they are most interested in having.
